i.n ? , did H"I euler his n.une.
Considerable bustle was seen shout the sturt. A
six-oar came pnUing up, which turned out to he a
crew of the old Columbia men?Mr. Cornell, Mr.
Timpson, Mr. (Griswold, Mr. George Riven, ami ?nu- or
two others. A Ungle senil -tas seen spproaehing
from Hie star! in Hart ard's line. An tint started f
No, only pulling arenad preliminarily. Somebody

Kennedy did not appear, viewed the rapidly rising

down Um course, tbe absenes of his competitor

broke forth ttiili their peculiar " Uah ! rafa ! rafa !"

bark of a ?dog, and this was repeated, when, having
? loosed the line, Mr. Well?, after pa] lliit his respects

The circumstances of this failure appear to have
been these: When the referee's boat arrived half
an bom ni so after the appointed time, Mi. Wells was
near tbe start in a working-boa! with bis shell in
readiness. No one else waa to be seen. The referee

mainly under my own ol;.-?rvati??ii, dttliog a
recent visit lo their country. My \i?it !<? this
legion was whollv in the Interests of M?CM_b
with no intention or wish t<? investigate Indian

1 to my initi?e by Red Cloud, who refits?.! to
allow my party to enter the " Had Loada*
until I had lumms?-?! to stilutni In- ??utiplaints
to you, in pe??n.
Since my mt? ivievv with you upon this f?uli

ot the fads before theui. This I am ?piite
r?-ady lode? whenever the committee request
it. I mu??! decline, however, to give my siati

following reasons -.
fbrett I have no confidence vth.iti ver in iha
sincerity of the Secretary of th<- liit?-ii<r ?u th?

Seront!: In all my Intcreonrac ttilh th?-??*?

to lind out, not so inueh what tin frauds a? tu

of Ulenia
'1 hinl i The evidence now in my pos ?a se? ion
reflects unfavorably on 1m?t ii ?Secretar. Delano

For these reasons, 1 have thought lust to htp
luton- yoi!, to vt ?imn, in ?iccordaiiee willi my

poctanco demands. In tin- stat? ment \v li it-is
accompanies this letter 1 have given the ic
sulis of my investigation loto th?' attain? of Red
Cloml Agency, ti"' itfgeol und mos. iin|)?'i!aiit
in the Weat. These results clearly indi? aie
both mismanagement and fraud, ? peeially ia
ihe following particulars!
Firstx The Agent, J. J. Saville, is wholly
unfitted for his position? and guilty of i_itK-a
?'i.nuls upon th?* IndiansJn his chart?'?'.
Stroud: The number ol* Indi in? at this /.goUCf
ha.s been -ystemat-cally overstated, f??r pur
posea which eau only result in fraud.
Thirdt The las! ???ne? ??f inanity gooda, whick
I witnessed, was a Bnspicious transact ion, and,
in part at least, fraudulent.
I-mull? : Tin* beef ??ailie given to the In?
dian*? have been very inferior, owing t<? wys
tematk frauds practiced by the agent ami heal
Fifth : The pork issued to the Indians dur?
um* my wit was not Mutable for human f???L
Birth : The floor wa? v? ry infermr, and the
evidence of fraud in this arti? I?? is eoneln
tieri nth : The tngni and cofl'?-?- Issued vvero
not good? although better than the other sup?
Eighthi The tob?ceo observed mu ratten.
and of Little Or no MB to the Indians.
Ninth i In consequence of fraud am! m?-m?m
agenient. the Indiana wuTcred greaUy ?luring
the past Winter for want of food ami clothing.
Truth: The contract for freight lunn Chey?
enne t<? Red Cloud Agency was fraudaient, as
the trae distance is 149 miles, while the non-*
tractor vtus paid tur 213 mile..
1 would especially call your attention t<? ihe
??tillen??- of fraud in beef ?utile, as presented
in th?- accompanying statement. This subject
I investigated with mach care, as beef is th?
principal article of food of the Binni Indiana.
and the frauds I observed have ?'.iiis?'?| gteal
sufl'eiing ?u.ion-- (.Km, as w?ll ?iH great poo

I have preparad is supported In all its raonntlal
parts by the testimony ?if officers ol' the army,
wba wer?- with me on my expedition, or al the
Red Cloud Agency. Among these officers ?ne
several personally known to you, ami all run
gentlemen of high character, should any part)
<?f my Statement be seriously questioned, I
trust you will allow these g-OtleUMn to lie
beard. II th?' oomnuuiding officers of all i>?)sts
near [odian agencies, or other equally _____t*>
worthy and disiaterested observers there, ??nil?!
likewise testify, I think it would be found Uno.
I have but faintly indicated the corruption
pervading Indian ?ill.tirs.
I have, purposely conf?n?.! myself in this
